I didn’t mean to buy this dress

Alternative Style Blogger Foxxtailz in Nastygal

It's true I didn't want to, not cos I hated it or anything, in fact, I freaking love it and haven't taken it off since it landed on my doorstep. It's just that I was once again trying to be an adult and good with my dollar bills and well, I saw Holly posting her fave bits on Twitter from the NastyGal site as they were having 40% new in sale and well before you knew it this burnt orange baby was mine. 

I daydreamed about teaming this silky number with a pair of fishnets nets and my docs whilst I waited for its arrival and I was very ecstatic when it actually worked out. Don't you just love it when that happens? Even though I'm a hater of the colder months [give me summer over the dark, miserable days any day] I can still try and get on board with AW fashions. Burnt orange for me is a very Autumnal colour, each autumn I mean to pick something up in that colour and every autumn I forget or don't quite find the right shade or brunt orange I'm after. This instance was kind of a happy accident when I was viewing the dress on the site, it seemed to be more of a yellow than orange. 

The only thing I was unsure of was the sleeves, I like them and everything but I didn't know if they would suit me or my style? But once I tried on the dress I was fully won over and majorly made up with my purchase. Only grievance? It's a bit short. Ya gals kinda getting sick of not being able to fit in 90% of the dresses on the high street, cater for the gal that's taller and not assumed were all 5'' and under yano? 

The day the photos were shot, we headed out to Manchester for a whirlwind trip on the way to the bloggers awards, basically, if I'm in the vicinity of Manchester I will always make sure we have time to shoot cos I love the backdrops of the NQ so much that and I have a serious home sweet home cake addiction. 

Also, guys, before you go, can I please just draw your attention to the uber cute glittery heart clip I was also wearing? The guys over at Stag and Raven very kindly sent it over to me given me all the nostalgic vibes from back in my emo days when I wouldn't even consider leaving the house if my hair wasn't backcombed to within an inch of its life and some sort of bow/clip in my hair. I have a few exciting thing happening with Stag and Raven over the course of the next few months so keep those peepers peeled!
